Stand Up For Your Rights! A new short film on mining, communities and environmental rights

21 August 2014 at 1:30 am

The Centre for Environmental Rights and the Mining Environmental Justice Community Network for South Africa (MEJCON) are proud to introduce a new short film called Stand Up For Your Rights. The film explores the meaning of our Constitutional right to a healthy environment, the many ways in which mining in South Africa violates this right, and what affected communities can do to change this story.

Stand Up For Your Rights was produced with a grant from the Ford Foundation.
